Summary

A unique companion to the challenging process of separation and divorce.

When Sara Davison's marriage broke down, she felt as though her life was over. It took every ounce of her strength to deal with the daily roller coaster of raw emotions and the practical difficulties that make divorce one of life's most stressful experiences.

Uncoupling is the guide Sara looked for - and couldn't find - at that time. Based on Sara's own experience of divorce and her work as a divorce coach and master NLP practitioner, Uncoupling will help you take back control of your own life by giving you the emotional and practical tools you need to cope with the end of your relationship and the business of starting again.

Sympathetic, reassuring and practical, Uncoupling will take you by the hand and show you that although the breakup of your relationship may be painful, it can also usher in a new beginning and a future that you will be excited to live.

Performance was distractingly awful.

Would you try another book written by Sara Davison or narrated by Sara Davison?

Possibly written, but narration was like listening to a children's TV presenter. Weak voice, awkward presentation and the most bizarre over emphasis on particular words.

Any additional comments?

A very personal account of how the author managed to come to terms with her divorce. Some practical tips but not much more helpful than sharing a bottle of wine and listening to someone else's story. A great deal of selling of her website, courses and retreats not so subtly interwoven into the book.

Great resource

I thought this was an excellent book.

It is well written and very informative. The book has a theme of providing constant reminders that the many of the challenges, behaviors, and experiences associated with breakup are *normal* while simultaneously providing concrete, practical exercises and guidance for moving forward. The book cites example after example of common problems and issues, and follows them with thoughtful advice and reasoning.

I found the whole work supportive, engaging, and practical.

As such, I think it is an excellent resource and highly recommended.

NOTE: I do strongly recommend some additional reading for those in this situation. And that is to read the books: Attached by Amir Levine (book or audiobook), Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Gottman (book) and listening (only available on audio) to The Power Of Vulnerability by Brene Brown (yep, worst title EVER. See my review, then listen to it) and Your Brain on Love by Stan Tatkin. My reason for this is to develop an education on secure relationship behaviors which are key to successful relationships. The framework of these books makes it much easier to see and avoid the traps of future relationships so that hopefully, a repetition of any errors can be avoided. Now, if you read these or similar books before the divorce, you can discard. If you are not familiar with these books, they are must reads - but probably NOT in the immediate after-math. Instead, the phase of being willing to go out and venture into the world again is when you should give these a go
